Bad news for all American fans waiting to see “Child 44″. Lionsgate has announced that Child 44 will bow on April 17th, 2015. This thriller from Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) concerns a police officer in Stalinist Russia who becomes wrapped up in a missing children case where no one seems to be asking the right questions. Based on the British novel by Tom Rob Smith, the film’s got a loaded pedigree, including Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace (also starring with Hardy in the upcoming The Drop), Espinosa’s Snabba Cash star Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel and a mini-Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes reunion with Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke. Let’s see how this turns out for the international releases as IMDb lists the film for an October release in Sweden and a December release in France.
The Independent has a fantastic new interview with Noomi in its weekend edition. They talk about many of her upcoming projects, including “Child 44″, “Alive Alone”, “What Happened to Monday?” and also traveling the world, working with Tom Hardy and the ups and downs of moving constantly. A very interesting article. Find a preview belwo, the complete piece is here.
Noomi Rapace made her name starring in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels in the Millennium trilogy looking like she had just left a new-wave punk band – clad in a leather suit with her black hair combed forward over her left eye, and numerous ear and nose piercings. She was a new type of female hero, combining brains â€“ an ace computer hacker â€“ and brawn. Her gut-wrenching performance as Lisbeth Salander helped propel herself and the books into the international stratosphere. Itâ€™s this complete immersion in her role that explains why the 34-year-old actress looks so emaciated when we meet. At first I was taken aback by how different she is from when we last met, less than two years ago. The dark locks seen in Prometheus have been dyed blond. And her frame, which was then toned by doing an impressive amount of Bikram yoga â€“ an activity pivotal to her character in the Brian De Palma flop Passion â€“ has now dissipated. The weight loss is because she is currently shooting Alive Alone, in which she plays a heroin addict and prostitute who gets entwined in New York with a former detainee from Guantanamo Bay. So, no need to call in the medics then.
